Welcome to this month’s Challenge Chicks challenge!

Sucker bird closeup

This month, Jeanne S has challenged us to do a card/project using “Splat” watercolors/ink splatters. I took this as a nudge
to finally do some work with my watercolors, both pan and pencil. I’ve never used Gamsol before (though I’ve owned a bottle
for quite some time). Since my Crazy Birds and their dies arrived this week, I was itching to use them. I think it was
a great match for this challenge!


Here’s my punny halloween card:

I used Tim Holtz’ Crazy Birds stamps and Crazy Birds dies. I wrote the sentiment out by hand. A few splatters of green,
purple and orange watercolors for the background and some crooked tiny brads. I don’t know how those brads ended up so
wonky. I decided not to fuss over it and just let it be 🙂

    Crazy Bird couldn’t be more delightful …. Splattering is the perfect way to show him off!
